Mining Treatment/ Remediation Supervision

Following a mining risk assessment and intrusive investigation, if treatment/ remediation of historical mining features is recommended, this will normally require supervision/ validation.

This may take the form of inspection of foundation excavations or supervision of a site (topsoil) strip prior to construction, or may be the full-time supervision of drilling and grouting activities or capping/ plugging of mine shafts.
